  1. Going for it on 4th and 1 is gutsy. Going for it on 4th and 4 is ill advised.
  2. Rooting for the vikings but my money is on the Browns. Browns pass rush too much for the Vikings is my thinking.
  3. This is the play that I don't get. "G.Joseph kicks 45 yards from MIN 35 to ARI 20. D.Harris to ARI 34 for 14 yards (R.Connelly). Squib kick." You go up by 23-21 just before the half and they decided to Squib kick it. Why not make Murray and company go the length of the field? Arizona played like they had nothing to lose and nailed a 62 yard FG just before the half.
  4. Vikings need a 8 minute clock killing scoring drive. Feed Cook.
  5. and a Defense that can't stop a sneeze
  6. Kyler Murray could end up with 500 yards passing.
  7. Arizona is starting to realize that the Vikings can't stop the run.
  8. Not watching the game but the yards per play makes it look like neither team knows how to play defense so far.
  9. Here is a team that has zero depth at the position and they basically send him to KC for absolutely nothing. Make me question the way the entire organization evaluates talent. No wonder San Fran is inquiring about the availability of Dantzler.
  10. I know enough to not over value preseason. I am not sure what Zimmer expected when you don't field a single starter. Isn't his job to get these guys ready. He needs to look in the mirror first for his criticism. Although the back ups Oline the Vikings are playing in pre-season are basically making the league minimum. https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/positional/offensive-line/ I don't get why teams continue to try to groom backup QB without NFL caliber arms like Browning. Seen enough of Ponder and Dalton to know it doesn't work. BTW, If they want a QB that actually has the ability to look good with 2 and and 3s then Kyle Sloter is available.
  11. Minnesota = B. As write this I realize that one draft can't not fix all the woes that plague the Vikings so judging the possible improvement in one year would be unfair. I hold out hope that they will be better 2-3 years down the road. The Vikings did what they had to do by spending picks on the offensive line. They are currently dead last in the league on O-line spending. They are gambling on potential over proven players which was their only real option due to the cap situation. I am not sure if the young O-line will be able to gel enough to offer protection to Cousins before his time is up. Conceivably they will be better than last year but I have heard that story before. The lineman the Vikings have drafted recently haven't lived up to their pre-draft hype. The focal point of the offense seems to center around Cook, rather than Cousins, which at least makes their job a little easier. Is the defense good enough to keep games close? Probably not. I don't think they have enough pass rush not to expose their weak secondary. I am sure Zimmer's game plan is to keep games close and control the clock with Cook. You have to be optimistic to believe that Hunter comes back to pre-injury form and they get major contributions from the DE rotation. I don't think they have enough quality pass rushers yet. I like the Kellen Mond pick despite bigger needs. It gives me hope that we can get out from the tyranny that is Kirk Cousins contract in the near future. The 66th pick will seem rather cheap if he can play in this league. Hopefully having a QB not making twice as much as the entire Oline will restore some balance to this team.
  12. The Vikings have to an attractive place for undrafted corner backs with their lack of quality depth. It would probably be too much to ask for if the Vikings could stumble upon the next Chris Harris in the ranks of this years undrafted.
